It’s easy to get frustrated in the heat of the moment, feel hopeless for a period of time, or angry at the people we care about. We usually think short-term and that never leads us anywhere good. We want big things for ourselves and there’s only one way to get there.
Ask hard questions. We need to ask ourselves tough questions that no one else will ask us. What do you want out of life? What do you want to experience? What are your flaws and imperfections? We can go deeper, but this is just a start. Asking ourselves difficult questions and creating innovative responses helps us create clarity for the future.
Remove mental barriers. To go out and achieve all that we want, we have to remove mental barriers. This will require a ton of self-work. From books, podcasts, to videos, we have the resources. Then comes the thinning and analysis — maybe the most difficult part. It’s when we face who we are and take action for change that we remove our limiting beliefs.
Set out goals. Once we have clarity, we can set goals. These can be anything, from climbing a mountain to building a business. Removing our limiting beliefs allows us to create a vision for ourselves that is endless. There’s a world of opportunity and all we have to do is go after it.
When we let the short-term fade and focus on the big picture for our lives, we can architect the way we want. We set goals, boundaries, and a field of possibility for us to leap into.
“Where there is no vision, there is no hope.” -George Washington Carver
